The Washington DC Region, Sports Car Club of America Solo program has always been trying to get kids involved, with a strong junior karting program that gets kids starting at the age of 5 learning to drive and competing in go-karts. We now offer a continuation for those young drivers by implementing a great way for newly licensed teens to practice advanced driving techniques on a regular basis. This is a one-time opportunity for young drivers to get their “feet wet” in SCCA Autocross for a great price. For those unfamiliar with SCCA Autocross, here’s how it works:
Autocross events are held on large, wide open parking lots typically found at air bases and stadiums. There, drivers compete in anything from their daily driver to highly developed race cars against the clock, navigating through a cone course as quickly as possible. Autocrossing is low risk, and in combination with great excitement and adrenaline, attracts anybody from ages 8 to 80 to DC Region Autocross events at FedEx Field on a given Sunday.
Our Track Days program is another option for young Motorsports enthusiasts. These events are strictly non-competitive and are based on in-car and classroom instruction and practice of performance driving and car handling.
The Washington DC Region realizes how important the safety of new drivers on the road is, and therefore is offering teens an incredible deal that will provide comfort and confidence in their own cars when it comes to driving on the street. New drivers that are of 19 years of age or younger will receive a season subscription to all of our Washington DC Region SCCA Autocross competition events in the current year for FREE if they take our WDCR Autocross Level 1 School at any point during the season. This could be a savings of up to $290, and allows teens to regularly work on car-control skills that could possibly lead to avoiding an accident on the street in emergency situations.
